We are pleased to inform that Prof.dr. Pieter Adriaans, professor of Learning and Adaptive Systems at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation and Informatics Institute of the University of Amsterdam and painter, will deliver an invited talk during JURIX 2014.

The topic of Pieter Adriaans’ talk will be specified soon.

“I still believe in the old Renaissance ideal of the universal man, not in the sense of knowing everything about everything but as the ambition to understand universal structures from different perspectives. The study of the category of information forms a unifying paradigm between science and the humanities. Art, science and business, all deal with information. Understanding the concept of information is one of the main scientific challenges of our time.”
